February 28, 2014   //   Microsoft System Center, , , , , , , , , ,

Today, I want to talk to you about Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager, a scalable and cost-effective solution used to backup, replicate and restore the critical data in your infrastructure. Watch my latest “Ask SWC” video to learn more.
System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager
Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager or DPM is specifically designed to protect and backup your critical Microsoft workloads, such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Hyper-V or virtualization solution and file servers. In today’s fast paced IT environment, you can have all of the redundancy in the world built into your infrastructure – multiple firewalls, redundant switch core stacks, redundant ISP links and redundant servers, but still lack the ability to protect your data against corruption or loss. Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager gives your team the tools to backup and replicate your data every 15 minutes to disk, tape and/or offsite data warehouse locations such as Windows Azure or the SWC Recovery Cloud. This provides you with the assurance that no matter what the situation, you will be able to protect and safeguard the critical data in your infrastructure. Additionally, Data Protection Manager provides IT departments with the tools necessary to design, implement and maintain a solid Disaster Recovery Plan.

Microsoft System Center 2012 R2’s newest release of Data Protection Manager provides enhancements and new features for Windows Azure Backup, SQL Server cluster support and deploying the solution in a virtual environment. If you’re looking for a strong solution for back up, replication and restoration of all of the data in your infrastructure, contact us to learn more about what Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager has to offer your organization.
